NDT techniques for Trunk

INDICATIONS: Decreased ROM due to structural limitations and/or changes in muscle tone that prevents the patient from assuming certain positions. PURPOSE: Increase R0M to improve structural alignment, so that the patient can select a more normal movement strategy when performing functional task

ASSESSMENT: Always done prior to mobilization. 1) Observe how the patient moves. 2) Attempt to facilitate the patient in a certain direction of movement. 3) Determine if there is resistance to movement in that direction.

GUIDELINES: 2) Start the mobilizations in the lumbar region first and always reassess alignment and mobility in the trunk after each type of mobilization to determine if "apparent" stiffness in other areas of the trunk have resolved secondarily to increased mobility
